• Our Getaway to The Lodges on Vashon

    5 months ago
    This blog is brought to you by... :) Tim and I love to travel. We typically try to get further away from home, so we can forget about all the daily chores. The Lodges on Vashon was something new to us, it caught me by surprise, but quickly made me fall in love. If you ever been to Seattle, you've probably noticed that it's a busy city. It'...
  • A Healthy Lifestyle for 2017

    5 months ago
    Over the last few months I've been frequently talking about switching to a healthy lifestyle. I want to share a bit of my story, maybe you can relate. I've always struggled with my weight and have always been the "fat" one in the group. After having kids and reaching over 200lb mark during pregnancy, I figured that I really needed to do something about my weight. I tried losing the weight on a...
  • Merry Christmas 2016

    Hello and Happy Holidays!!! This year time has flew by and Christmas has snuck up on us. All of my Christmas shopping is done, I didn't have a ton of gifts to buy, so it was easy. I am grateful for all the places that offer online shopping, because crowded stores stress me out. One of the coolest traditions we started this year, is taking boys to shop for each other. Their budget wasn't huge,...

    Hi! Holidays are already around the corner! Is your house all decorated? We've moved last summer and all of the old stuff doesn't match our new house. Well, actually the new house doesn't match our style, so we ended up with a big mess of opposite styles, lol.. Since the color white matches everything, I am sticking with it for decorations. So far I like how our Christmas decorations turned out...

  • Labor Day in Fairmont, Scottsdale

    I wanted to share some photos from our recent trip to Scottsdale, AZ. Our friends are frequent visitors there and invited us to tag along. Initially we had Banff, Canada planned for that weekend, but it turned out that it snows there in September. We figured we'd better off enjoy the sunshine. We stayed at Fairmont in Scottsdale, AZ. The resort itself is huge, I believe it sits on 60 acres, but...

    Now that I am back, I am playing a bit of a catch up. I know this post is way overdue, but I really wanted to share a bit of what we've been up to. This is from our trip to the Ocean Shores on a Memorial Day weekend. We stayed at Oyhut Bay cottage for 3 nights and we had a blast.

    Hello :) Yes I am still alive, well, barely. We finally listed our house for sale and in a process of moving to our new place. As you probably know, I still work full time, with 3 hour of commute each day. This all adds up to no time for a break. But I love this busy schedule, it keeps me in check and I never have a moment to be bored. My job offered me to go to New Orleans to one of the events...
  • Surviving Juicing for a Week + Great Juice Recipe

    1 year ago
    A lot of you have asked for details about my juicing, so I will share my experience with you. Just a little summary before I get started. I have always struggled with weight. I was the biggest and tallest in my elementary classes, not one of those girly girls. While pregnant, I hit 205lbs with both pregnancies. Losing weight after that was a nightmare, but I was able to get down to 141lbs. So...
